I'm happy to announce that I have to give away five vouchers for "The modern C++ Programming Cookbook" 2en Edition by Marius Bancila.
I asked Marius to write a few words about his book. Here are they:
Are you looking for a book to help you learn about the new C++20 standard? The Modern C++ Programming Cookbook 2nd Edition
, written by Marius Bancila, is a book that can help you do that. This second edition is an updated version that covers all of the most important features of C++20.
The book is organized in recipes that cover one topic or programming task that C++ developers often encounter. Each recipe explains how to do something and provides details for how that works. The book features more than 130 recipes covering C++11/14/17/20. It provides guidance for using a large variety of language and library features, good practices for writing C++ code, explore patterns, and several of the most widely used testing frameworks. Although the book is intended for developers regardless of their experience with C++, it is not an introductory book to C++; therefore, this book does not teach you the basics of the C++ programming language.
In this book, Marius is covering the following C++20 topics:
- text formatting library (std::format)
- chrono calendars and time zones
- bit manipulation utilities
- latches, barriers, and semaphores
- atomic operations
- immediate functions (
- three-way comparison (spaceship operator
- using enums
- template lambdas and changes to lambda captures
How can I win a copy of the book?
The publisher of the book, Packtpub, is offering five free e-copies of the book. What you have to do is answering the following question:
"What is your favorite C++20 feature and why?"
Marius and I will decide what are the best five answers and will announce the winners in a new blog post including the best answers. Add to your answer if I should include your name when I present your answer.
What are the rules
Please share this post. We are curious about your answers.
